Logistics & Details
- This event is 2- hours long, for groups of 5-300 participants of all fitness and ability levels.
This event requires a private indoor or outdoor space, large enough to accommodate the entire group, standing around six to ten large tables.
There are no chairs required for this activity, as the challenges are all moderately active in nature. If this event takes place outdoors, it is best held in a location where all participants can hear the lead facilitator (with the aid of a loudspeaker or megaphone, when necessary).
- This event can be facilitated with or without the use of technology (in the case of a remote location or outdoor venue)
how it works
At the beginning of the event your Dovetail Lead Facilitator will provide a short briefing with game instructions, and then divide participants into pre-determined teams of 7-8 people, with each team representing a country of their choice.
Teams are encouraged to create and share a country-specific cheer, before being paired off to compete in a series of Olympic-themed games, located at stations around the venue.
At each station, Dovetail facilitators provide game instructions and demonstrations, and give teams a few minutes to determine the best strategy for earning the highest score at the station.
Every participant is included in every activity, so no one is left out of the action and excitement.

Olympic "Team Table Tennis" Event
In this entertaining version of "table tennis", each team will divide into "servers" and "rebounders". Servers will use a table tennis paddle to hit Ping-Pong balls to the rebounders on their team. The rebounders will use small boards to shoot the Ping-Pong balls into their team's bucket. Points will be awarded based on the number of balls successfully rebounded into each team's bucket.
